Welcome to my God of War, I mean, Conan review. This game in many ways is similar to GOW. Button combinations, style, and game play. The story line was well written. The cinema graphics were great. Perhaps I had higher expectations going into this game and left with my head hanging low. Save yourself the time and get God Of War and you will be happier. The only good thing I have to say is that the random naked women were a surprise.
While playing CONAN, I had to check that my PS3 didnt say PS2 on it. First of all let me confirm what everyone will say:THIS IS G.O.W PERIOD!, just in a diffrent setting. The graphics are sub-par!(SLIGHTLY better that PS2 graphics). The cut-scenes are poorly developed(on par with early to mid life PS2 games. Espically in the hair, looks like everyone has dredlocks!). The gameplay is ho-hum (reminds me of playing GAUNTLET in the arcades). The enemy a.i. is unbalanced to easy in medium & insainly difficult on hard(You will get attacked by a group and end up losing half ur life or more before u can get a hit in). The weapon/combo system although a good thought, gets lost will all the diffrent combos.(U will likley end up using one type of weapon/combo). Annoying load times everytime u die(reloading the same level/boss u were just on) Having Ron Pearlman as the vioce of CONAN was a BAD IDEA! The boobs are a nice touch but not enough to keep u intrested. In the end this was a rushed game to make a quick buck and reflects badly on THQ and NILHISTIC. Hopefully future game will contune to get better and show what the PS3 can really do. Untill then save ur game rental and pass this on up.

The game is fun to play,if your looking for a game to pass this is probably it.The game will appeal to the older crowd with its gore and chopping limbs off and we can forget the half naked ladies,But for the younger crowd i dont think it will appeal to u.In a few areas the graphx arent that great for ex.there are times when conan has an aura around him not sure if its pixel related.if u need something to pass the time pick this up
